Victorian singer-songwriter Benny Allen has continued his award-winning run at the Australian People’s Choice Awards.
Although he couldn’t be at the Tamworth Country Music Festival this year, Benny will have a treasured memento from January, taking out the award for Best Bush Ballad with his single, Battle of Point Nepean.
This follows on from his win in the Australian Country Music People’s Choice Awards last year for Best Video Clip.
“I’m blown away to have had so many people connect with a song about Australia’s first brush with quarantine,” he said.
“It means so much to me, to be included not just as a finalist, but as a winner of one of these prestigious awards. When you look at the historical winners list, it’s humbling to think that my name is being included amongst people that can be identified by their first name in this industry - Troy, Lee, Beccy, Amber and both of the Adams.”
